Community and Family Services

Our Community and Family Services (CFS) are connected to our church and work alongside our thrift stores (and where applicable, our shelters, addiction treatment centres and corrections and justice programs) to fulfil the mission of The Salvation Army to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the communities of our world. We strive for holistic support programs that meet the specific challenges in our community To meet these challenges more effectively, we partner with other organizations and agencies to improve services and strengthen our community’s ability to assist those who find themselves in a place of need to transition towards a better future.

We conduct individual appointments to assess needs and identify the community supports that are available for those seeking assistance.
This assistance can take many forms such as:

  • Food Assistance (via Soup Kitchen and Food Bank)
  • Clothing and basic essential household items
  • Pro Bono legal advice
  • Spiritual counselling
  • Children’s Backpack Program (Seasonal)
  • School Packs
  • Healthy Babies Program
  • Camp Sunrise [Camp registrations open in April. Contact youth@nullparksvillesalvationarmy.ca]
  • Counselling and referrals
  • Emergency Disaster Services
  • ID Retrieving Service

Please contact us for more information on any of these services.
